Three-Thousand Year Old Temple Reportedly Destroyed

But it wasn't in Jerusalem so you may not have read or heard about it:

AIN DARA, Syria (A.W.)—Both the Syrian government and the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor confirmed on Sunday that Turkish shelling of Syria’s Afrin region has seriously damaged the Ain Dara Iron Age temple.

Reuters has circulated that Ain Dara, an iron age temple with remains of large carved basalt blocks and wall reliefs, 

was hit with shells and that the Syrian government’s antiquities department called for international pressure on Turkey “to prevent the targeting of archaeological and cultural sites”.

And Turkey was so upset with Israel in 2007 when it was fixing the external entrance to the Temple Mount and archaeological excavations were done under Turkish supervision and 24-hour cameras. And Erdogan is increasing his demands to retake the site as in Ottoman times.

As we know: if it involves Jews it makes the news.
